A local Non Governmental Organisation has stepped in to minimise challenges at one school in Malawi's old capital, Zomba.

This follows rehabilitation of a classroom block at Chilunga Community day Secondary School which had its roof blown off by stormy winds in February this year.

The development forced officials at the school to create makeshift classrooms under trees.

This in turn made learning and teaching tough at the school as pupils and teachers had difficulties adapting to such conditions.

The organisation Creative Centre for Community Mobilisation (CRECCOM) has spent over MK1 million to support rehabilitation works at the school.

Speaking to Capital FM, Headteacher for the school lamented on challenges learners were facing before rehabilitation of the classroom block.

Maluwa Makuru disclosed that the past have been difficult for everyone at the school.

"Several times classes had to be interrupted due to unfriendly environment hence affecting students’ performance in class.

Forms one and four were the most affected considering that their classroom was badly damaged and had to learn under trees," Makuru explained.

However the Chilunga CDSS head teacher appealed for more support since the school has few classroom blocks.

He disclosed that the enrollment number of students is over 500 which forced authorities to introduce shift classes to accommodate the students.

"Classrooms are inadequate and as such we are appealing to well wishers to come in and help to construct additional classes," he added.

Board chairperson for CRECCOM reaffirmed total support to Malawi's education sector so as to improve quality education among learners.

Foster Kholowa however stressed the need for multisectoral approach among stakeholders to make sure that pupils learn in conducive environment.

Meanwhile, Head of Media and Communications at CRECCOM Geoffrey Kamanga revealed that his organisation’s commitment in supporting education within and outside the city boundaries. 

He disclosed that the organisation will strive to mobilise resources aimed at promote girl child education as well as the education at large.

Chilunga CDSS opened its doors in 1997 and serves learners from Ndola, Naisi, Chinamwali, Mulunguzi and other areas surrounding Zomba city.
